Kitchen sink, stainless undermount or Trugranite undermount?


We will be replacing our kitchen cabinets sometime this year, and also the counter tops and kitchen sink.
I was just going to go with stainless, but while on your website, a Google ad popped up about kitchen sinks, so I clicked on it
I then found there are more options for kitchen sinks than what I had seen in a Home Depot type store or even some online cabinet stores.

Here is the link.

Does anyone know and pros or cons for trugranit?
This would be the size I would get if we went that route

It does say its resistant to light scratches, which my stainless sink seems to show scratches.
The only thing I wonder about, is food stains like coffee?
I just remember growing up in the 50-60-s when my parents had a porcelain kitchen sink that my Mom had to use cleaners with bleach just to keep it clean.

Any thoughts?

What type countertop are you installing? If it's a soild top then most often the countertop company installs the sink.

Not sure about that brang of sink but I have a composite sink in my home and I've had 0 issues with it.
Just wish I had not picked black, it shows every spot. Not scratches, things like water spots.

we didn't choose an exact counter top yet, but whoever puts it in we won't give them the liberty to choose our kitchen sink
I also have a general spigot in mind for the sink. If they won't give us a choice on either, then we will find another counter top company.
This will be our first set of new kitchen cabinets in any of our homes over the years. The house we are in now 18yo we had a choice of cabinets when we had it built, but now they are falling off the wall We didn't realize that the choices they were giving us were particle board.
I was probably thinking an off white or tan that might go with whatever counter we choose which will also be granite.

I just installed the new granite type under mount sink. I love it so far, mine is dark grey. I found a great deal with an online company. A tip I wish I knew prior to granite install was they take the template that the manufacturer recommends and if you don't want any lip at all make sure to tell whoever installs your countertop that the top covers all edge of sink.
